In this book the principles of Vastu as propounded in our ancient books that are MUST have been explained in a manner that can be comprehended by everyone. The essentials ENERGY SOURCES are air, sunlight, and the cosmos energy. These with the knowledge of energy flow assigned to different sectors (Agni, Varun, Yam etc) and directions (Eeshan North East for prayers, South East for Agni etc) have been accounted while explaining the basics. They are important for creating subtle energies which provide for mental peace and happiness in a property and related to you as an energy source too.

This book can be used as a ready referral by all. It would be very useful while you start construction or reworking a property. The energy flow can correct impressions that are important for peace. I am sure you will find this book interesting. It can be used by all in various walks of life.


Vats means to reside and it is from the word that Vaastu is derived. It means “to reside” and was the ancient science of living.

Vastu is not architecture. It is much more than that. While architecture is the science of designing and constructing a building etc, the realm of Vastu is in the applied aspects of ATHARVAVEDA. This is an ancient science and one of the eminent features of our heritage.

In the ancient Sanskrit scriptures, Vastu means the place where Humans and God dwell. Fate, Karma and surroundings govern the life of a human being. The principles of Vastu can make life sweeter and negativities can be reduced.

Building a house in the about brick & cement but it was considered as a living organism. Vastu - Purush was considered cardinal direction and sectors play from different directions have a to Brahma, Ishwar, Agni, Varun, (Demon).

The common sense rules as that of ventilation and sunlight remain of utmost importance. The rules which rule the subtle energy and built effective environments are of importance and are today being applied and appreciated. The Earth is our mother and source of happiness as also the Sun that radiates heat and light. Their roles have been tapped in the Principles of Vastu.

If the settings are as per the principles of Vastu, the thought, speech and action are supported by nature and that leads us to prosperity & happiness. The principles should not only be used in dwellings or premises but also used in town and country planning. Vastu countervails the negative planetary effects for sure based on sound principles of physics, engineering and the energy movement.

The science has great depth but in this book I have tried to explain the basics that are important to be kept in mind while selecting land, construction, building an office or residence and the interiors. Tips, remedies, colors and directions which are important have been dwelled.

As a book for your reference you will find it very useful. Also it could be a starting point for those who are interested in going deeper into the subject.

My endeavor has been to write it in a way that it demystifies Vastu for the common person and helps them using it practically. All my books are the result of the inspiration provided by my father, Late Shri K.C. Saksena and the blessings of my mother Dr Krishna Saksena who is my greatest inspiration today.

The support from my wife, Renu and motivation by my daughter Vrinda, I must mention. Also I acknowledge the help of Saurabh Sagar and Tanya Gupta, my sister who is active with research at Bhartiya Vidya Bhawan. I end asking for the blessings of Lord Bake Bihari of Vrindavan.
